Dynamic, exploratory, and emergentред That describes the productive session we had today. Sylvia requested feedback on her upcoming ethnographic presentation at the Society for Applied Anthropology. Clarence and David were in sync - bouncing ideas off of each other, productively helping Sylvia re-conceptualize her paper. Elizabeth provided a developmental perspective to the conversation. She helped capture the sense of "going against the tide" and changing professional culture in medical school. Gabe crystallized the imagery with the recommendation that the intervention be characterized as an "injection of humanism." It was a extraordinarily generative session.
